It’s a Dark Edged Bee-fly (Bombylius major).

For future reference, you would be better posting in the main section of the site at https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/uk-and-ireland. Select the button towards the top right of the page to “+ Add observation”.

Lovely picture - hope to see it posted in the main section as suggested by Thistle

Well spotted! I have yet to snap one of these up on camera! Well done!
